I was wrong about Vitamin D!
April 21, 2009
Ahhhh! The feel of sunlight on my skin. I LOVE it!
And I'll bet that you do too.
Here in The San Francisco Bay Area, it's just starting to get sunny out, and that's good news for those of us that feel good in the sun.
But most of us do. In fact, a recently released study from McGill University conclusively showed that getting even a few minutes of sunlight each day - and even in the wintertime- improves mood and social behaviors.
As you probably know by now, I'm a HUGE PROPONENT of Vitamin D- and keeping your Vitamin D blood levels between 50 to 80 ng/ml year round.
But if you live north of 37 degrees latitude, you don't make any Vitamin D all winter- even if you are outside and it is sunny!
So, whatever it is that is making people feel better, it's not JUST Vitamin D.
But that means that I'm WRONG about Vitamin D!
Vitamin D is not the ONLY substance that the body is able to make when sunlight strikes us. In fact, a substance called Corticotropin Releasing Hormone is also produced when sunlight strikes the eye.
CRH is one of the Major regulators of the stress response from the adrenal glands-in fact it is THE major regulator! So, it's no wonder we feel so much better when we get regular sunlight exposure.
While doctors continually tell us that sunlight exposure is bad for us- studies tell us that the Benefits of Sunlight exposure are legion.
And while Sufficient Vitamin D certainly has a LOT to do with reaping the Benefits of Sunlight, Corticotropin Releasing Hormone, may have at least as much to do with it.
In the early 1900's, the Tuberculosis Sanatoriums, run by doctors in Europe and America who did not know of each others work, all came to the same conclusions about the Benefits of Sunlight.
The book Dark Deception by Dr. Mercola, goes more into depth about the Benefits of Sunlight and how the Medical Profession has conned us into believing that something so good for us is actually bad for us.
Getting regular sunlight exposure is a prerequisite for good health, and one that most of us absolutely just don't get enough of.
But don't take my word for it, get Dark Deception
today and judge for yourself about the Benefits of Sunlight Exposure.
